I know we''ve discussed her ad nauseum before but I was really dissecting her face the other night while watching Erin Brockovich, stuck out of town. I came to the conclusion that she is quite ugly. She can pass as reasonably attractive when her hair is done well and she has a pretty good body but that face is unfortunate. Her mouth is enormous and she has bad teeth. Anyone ever seen her up close and personal?
I think she''s beautiful
Sarah Jessica Parker
At the Golden Globes her nose looked different - bad different. Like it was pinched.\
She won''t be growing old beautifully like Meryl
I''ve seen her briefly in person. She''s rat-like, emaciated, looks pretty much the same as she does on screen just much scrawnier.
She was lovely when she was young. Not so much anymore, though.
Ugh, hate that fug bitch.
It''s "ad nauseam" not "nauseum."
BWD (Bitch With Dictionary)
The OP posted "ad nauseum", BWD.
BWE (Bitch With Eyes)
I think in Julia''s case "nauseum" is fitting.
[quote]The OP posted "ad nauseum", BWD.\
I know. It''s incorrect. "Nauseam" is misspelled. It should be AM, not UM.
Gossip is one thing. This is below pointless bitchery. Get a life, OP.
Could we talk about ugly Julia and not spelling. Christ, you queens get off topic easily.
R10, sweetie, how long have you been dropping in on DL? We love talking trash about celebs especially ones who think they are something special when in reality they aren''t even attractive enough to qualify as ordinary.
Which actor was it, maybe Hugh Grant, who claimed her mouth was so big that kissing her was like falling in a cave, or something like that? I thought it was pretty funny.
She''s nutty. Years and years after high school (but before google) she''d have a private detective check in on a guy she went out on one date with in high school.
Sorry, BWD, I was wrong. I think I''m gonna hurl.
She looked pretty rough in Duplicity last year. Age is catching up with her.
Aloe Vera does wonders for aging skin. Just sayin''.
I never understood her appeal. A straight male friend of mine adores her and says it''s her megawatt smile that makes her beautiful. Some folks are easily pleased, I guess.
I never got her. She is not beautiful, passably attractive but then her face got so gaunt, I always thought she looked better with some weight on her.
She''s got a huge mouth and many pirhana-like teeth. Frightening.
She was attractive enough when she was young, but she''s not aging well. \
Suddenly at age forty, her large mouth and strong jaw started to make her look oddly mannish, and every year she looks more and more like her brother Eric.
I was about to reply that women with really strong faces don''t seem to age well (Brooke Shields), but then I thought of Vanessa Redgrave, who''s aged beautifully.\
In Julia''s case, the pinched nose seems to be working against her. Her eyes are kind of dead. The smile is fake. \
She was beautiful in Mystic Pizza. How many years ago was that?
She''s not beautiful anymore
OMG, that big ass curl on his forehead (in R21''s pic) is so Betty Boop it makes me want to scream.
Can you say precious?
Debra Messing is a cunt.
Blind African orphan
Don''t forget the upper slug lip..
I guess I''m the lone voice on here -- I think Roberts looked great in "Duplicity" and even though she never was a traditionally "beautiful" woman, her odd features somehow work on screen. \
Just don''t get me started on that "laugh" of hers.
I agree with you for the most part, r27. She''s not traditional-looking but that was never her appeal. She''s incredibly photogenic, much more so when she was younger. It''s definitely a case of the sum being greater than the parts. Pretty Woman perfectly captured her unique radiance.
Like many people, I was fooled into thinking Julia Roberts was attractive in "Pretty Woman", where the hair balanced out and kind of hid the worst of her features.\
I remember seeing the trailers for some spy-type movie she was in with Denzel Washington, and there''s a scene [in a parking structure iirc] where her hair is braided and she''s wearing sunglasses, and her mouth is so incredibly wide and bizarre, it shocked the hell out of me every time I saw it.
shuddering at the memory
The huge mouth and big lips are a Roberts family trademark.\
Eric Roberts was quite a piece in his younger days. But his face was disfigured in a motorcycle accident and never looked the same again.\
Both Eric and Julia Roberts are batshit crazy. Mental illness runs in their family.
that huge mouth and those sharp teeth come in quite handy for chewing on the scenery tho, R20, so overall its working out quite well for her.
She''s really a shit actress. You realize that once you see dailies, not cut footage (which I did and I was SHOCKED at how bad she is). It''s a tragedy that someone with so little talent makes so much money.
The problem is when a woman starts hitting her mid-30''s, she starts losing fat and collagen in the face. So, it''s a good idea to gain a bit of weight; like 5-10 lbs. Of course, Hollywood actresses need to remain as thin at 40 something as they were at 25, so most of them look like shit without the benefit of plastic surgery and hours of makeup.
She pays her husband an allowance every month. Any woman who pays a guy to stay has to be ugly.
"She pays her husband an allowance every month. Any woman who pays a guy to stay has to be ugly."\
Most men pay their wives/girlfriend an allowance. Any man who has to pay a woman to stay has to be ugly.
I''ll still go see a movie just because she''s in it. Although Eat Pray Love might be the end of my adoration.
I heard her big horse hooves clomping down the street before I saw her last year when Duplicity was filming in the West Village. Seriously, she clomped. And she was nothing to look at.
[quote]I heard her big horse hooves clomping down the street before I saw her last year when Duplicity was filming in the West Village. Seriously, she clomped. And she was nothing to look at.\
That reminds me of that scene in Ocean''s 11 when she walks into the lobby of the hotel and they do a full pan of her entrance and track the shot. It was awful. She was so graceless and awkward and we were supposed to be awed by her beauty and elegance much like Danny Ocean was. It also didn''t help that in that scene the unflattering lighting gave her what appeared to be a mustache.\
I still have a weird affection for Julia although it''s dimmed over the years (A Low Vera, "I love my life!", etc. The same sort that I used to have for Tom Cruise before the crazy was unleashed.
she looks terrible with her hair pulled back - she NEEDS that full head of hair framing her face.
good god!!!! r31 is that pic photoshopped?!
That is a horrible picture at R31. She''s not aging well AT ALL. It''s only a matter of time before I start getting her roles.
Saw her walking from the location set to her trailer during the filming of the scene in My Best Friend''s Wedding where she almost breaks up Cameron Diaz and Dylan McDermott. \
She is very tall and had the skiniest legs (and calves) I had ever seen. While her hair photographed red in the film, it was strawberry blond in person.
It''s disturbing how the tip of her nose almost goes into her mouth.
I knew people at Time where she was being photographed for a cover in her prime (around the time of Erin Brockovich) and the one thing they all brought away from the photo shoot was how thin she was. Extremely thin. I do think she has that movie star quality of being ultra photogenic and, in her case, having a million-dollar smile (most exemplified in Pretty Woman). She can connect through the movie screen. I do think she has peaked and, although she can keep the career going through movies like Eat Pray Love that should have built-in box office, she''s not on the top of the heap anymore.
Funny that the only two times (IMO) she "connected" with the audience was playing a whore in "Pretty Woman" and an abrasive, pushy piece of white trash "Erin Brokovitch".
In r43''s 2009 pic, Roberts looks great--- and that''s coming from someone who can''t stand her ass.\
In his younger days, Eric Roberts was simply gorgeous, which is why I just love watching his 1981 movie, Raggedy Man (also stars Sissy Spacek).
wow r33. I never thought she was a bad actress, but after hearing you say her acting is put together piece by piece. wow.\
Clearly not an actor, just love movies in TX
r31, her eyes are so friendly there.\
Her eyes convey hatred in interviews now.
r57, meant r43.
Well R34, I think I''m going to stop trying to shed this 5 extra pounds I''ve been carrying around. ;-)
39 and counting.
So is she really a drunk?\
She does have very bizarre behavior at events.
She seems like a drunk.
I don''t get how she made it. What is the magic ingrediant - teeth?
I remember back in the day when she was rumoured to be bisexual, although I''m not sure why.
Part of the reason she looks horrible these days is that she''s gone blonde.%0D\
She looks AWFUL with blonde hair, it looks ultra-fake and it makes her face look peculiar. She needs to go red or brown again.
I hate her as much as the rest of the DL, but I think that if she took roles that showed her nasty, cunty,evil bitch side (and we all know she has a HUGE muti-faceted one) she might actualy be a better "actress" than when she tries to portray sweet, nice, good women. She has to realize that no one buys her in these "good woman" roles any more. She''s just not a good enough actress to pull it off. If she did start taking the bitch roles she wouldn''t even really have to act, she would only have to memorize lines.%0D
R65, you are right.%0D\
Julia Roberts is in final negotiations to play the Evil Queen in one of the new SNOW WHITE live action films.
Julia eats at my restaurant from time to time. She is by no means ugly. She is by no means beautiful. She is above average, maybe, but she is Julia Roberts. She has that star wattage, and I HATE her. But she just has it. And, she is shockingly nice to my staff. Tips well. Never complains.
I saw her backstage on Broadway. Her arms were not skinny, nor were her hips. But her neck was thin and ropy.%0D\
She had major bitch face.
I never thought she was attractive, when you look at each feature separately, she''s quite fug.\
Her mouth is too big, she has odd teeth, she has a strange shaped nose with big nostrils and her entire face is ferret-like. \
At least she doesn''t have those scary too-big Keane painting eyes like Anne Hathaway! But Robert''s eyes aren''t much better.\
Her laugh makes my ears bleed, I''ve never found her laugh cute or infectious, just damn annoying. \
All she had going for her was her mane of hair.\
As for her acting, I was never a fan.
What does she really think about Bullock?
Stick man, I see you and I bank you for really making me feeeeel.....
Here's Julia in 1989 on her first appearance on Letterman's show. She was beautiful then.
Don't forget the big vein running down her forehead.
Yes, have seen her in person, and she's stunning, unlike how I would lay gold bullion on the fact that the majority of the losers in this thread probably look like Rip Taylor on a bad hair day.
I think she looked great then, great now. She looked fantastic in Duplicity and Larry Crowne.
Eric Roberts was quite hot in his youth. His looks were ruined by a motorcycle accident that fucked up his face. Druga and alcohol didn't help, either.
Julia Roberts was attractive in that unusual Roberts way when she was younger; both she and Eric had good eyes and full lips and defined noses. And Julia had that big hair back then. I would never have called her drop dead gorgeous, but that was the way she was perceived by many. At any rate, she is not aging well. Those attributes that made her attractive back then, like the large wide mouth, don't lend themselves well to middle age.
I read some of a biography of Julia Roberts. I don't remember the author, but the book had a lot of information. To sum it up, Julia Roberts was/is slutty and bitchy. And her family was REALLY fucked up. I can't remember the details but Eric was really messed up by his upbringing; he developed a stutter in his childhood that was difficult for him to overcome and of course his emotional problems resulted in a very disturbed young man. I always thought he a better actor than his sister but he fouled up his life and career with his his erratic behavior and addictions. His loving sister distanced herself from him long ago, but supposedly is close with his daughter, who has inherited the Roberts big mouth and is intent on being a big movie star. It just goes on and on, in the way dysfunctional families do.
She was hot when she was young and still eating food and had a nice big ass. Looked like a fun ride. That was a brief moment. She has looked starved and crazy for decades.
People magazine has her on the cover of their "Queen of the Cunts" issue next week.
R80 - Yes, she had a huge ass in Mystic Pizza.
A friend of mine waited on her and said she was good-looking and very low-key. I've noticed that DL'ers tend to equate low-key with cunty.
She's "cunty" on airplanes.
I am too, Lou the Stew! Not enough room, too many people wearing tank tops/camis, food sucks, and the plane might crash. She probably hates flying too, Lou the Stew.
No, she just has a reputation for being a bitch.
She's pretty and charming in the clip at R75.
She seems toxic now. Always has that "don't you dare question me" attitude beneath the surface.
Two reports on this thread that she's nice to waitstaff. That's usually where assholes shine - so who knows?
R88 - 1989 was a long time ago. Katherine Heigl was also charming in her early interviews.
A few years ago I was walking around Gramercy Park. I turned a corner and bumped into her as she was walking her dog. She was very pleasant and we both apologized for not paying attention I remember thinking she looked so pretty.
